Let's give my nemesis, cheap-felt, another try, minus the hot glue and plus the hand-stitchery.
Though my blue wasn't quite light enough, the goal was to make a Zelda style heart container.
Then took one of the blue hearts and cut out the middle to make a border for depth.
I used a blanket stitch around the blue heart. Blanket stitch is a lot of fun! You can find a good tutorial here.
Lastly, I used a simple straight stitch to sew the red heart in place.
On the back I hot-glued a small piece of felt so that I could slip the heart onto a headband!
The next day I made one with Navi the annoying fairy!

I like the Navi fairy better I think. The best part about this is you can slip the felty off the headband and interchange them as much as you want! I got that idea from Cousin T when she made me a steampunk headband, so clever!
With felt so cheap and the blanket stitch so fun to do, I think we should make more fun felty headbands! For Valentine's day maybe? We can wear them to the grocery store on weekends or something, haha!
